Cabled !Hoodie

The knitting part is done, but the zipper shopping and installation part is not.

Here’s hoping I can find a zipper locally at my LFS/LQS and maybe get this sweater done this long weekend (because everyone needs a thick wool sweater on July 4th!).

I have some trying crap going on right now, most notably that my lovely kitty Claw has been seriously ill for over a month. Not even a veterinary neurologist can figure it out.

I am just working through it as best I can, doing whatever I am able and hoping that I will know the right time to make a very crappy decision.

    aw, poor claw. i guess you can just make her as comfy as possible, right? lots of hugs and kitty treats!

    the sweater turned out great! if you can’t find a zipper you can always special order from zipper stop in NYC.

    My thoughts go to Claw – it’s so hard to help them when we can’t speak the same language.

    I’m jealous. I kept thinking about the non-hoodie all day. Tis brilliant.

    Any news on Claw?

    I’m sorry Claw isn’t doing so well. I hope you’re able to figure out what’s going on with her, or at least keep her comfortable. It’s so hard to have a sick kitty who you can’t really help. (((Hugs)))

    Your sweater turned out great! Good luck on the zipper – I seem to remember that Grumperina had a great tutorial for picking one and sewing it in, if you need some motivation/inspiration.

    I’m sorry to hear about Claw. :( Those decisions are crappy to make. *hugs*

    Your sweater looks great, though! I’m in awe.
